A year ago, both Council Rock South and La Salle saw their baseball seasons end in devastating fashion. In an error-marred state-quarterfinal playoff, C.R. South yielded three runs in the bottom of the seventh and bowed to Spring-Ford, 6-5. La Salle, after jumping out to an 11-0 lead in the first 11/2 innings of a Catholic League semifinal against Neumann-Goretti, gave up 13 runs in a nightmarish sixth inning and fell, 18-13. The chance to come full circle comes on Friday, when the Golden Hawks and Explorers clash in a PIAA Class AAAA championship game set for 1 p.m. at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

THE MOST pressing matter on my mind leading up to La Salle's Sweet 16 game on Thursday is how I am going to obtain a ticket. Not to the West Regional semifinal against Wichita State, but to the Flyers-Islanders matchup taking place in Philly on the same night. Let me explain. I'm a bit superstitious, and in my mind the only way for La Salle to win on Thursday, is for me to be in the building I've visited each day the Explorers have won an NCAA Tournament game this year - the Wells Fargo Center.

Even after a stellar opening performance, La Salle's Kyle Shurmur wanted to talk about the things he needed to improve on as a quarterback moving forward. "Numbers are numbers," the 6-foot-4, 215-pound senior said after throwing for 338 yards and four touchdowns in Friday's night's 29-7 triumph over host North Penn in Lansdale. "We can't stall on drives like we did at times. That's on me. " Shurmur, who is ticketed for Vanderbilt, connected on 23 of 36 attempts. In the first half, he was 16 for 22 for 225 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

LOS ANGELES - The good doctor didn't mean to be contrary. Dr. John Giannini was not being obtuse, or ornery, or even particularly prickly the past 2 weeks, when he disputed the "Cinderella" tag affixed to his Explorers. His dispute, of course, was meant to legitimize La Salle in his own players' eyes. He's practically a sports psychologist, for goodness' sake. Don't let him mesmerize you with that soothing tone. La Salle was as Cinderella a story as any team, ever.

NEW YORK - John Giannini has insisted that the margin for error for his La Salle team in the Atlantic 10 is minuscule. In Fordham's overstuffed gym in the Bronx Saturday, he was proven right. The Explorers (18-11, 7-7 A-10) dropped a physical 67-62 decision to Fordham, surrendering 35 points and 16 rebounds to Chris Gaston, the league's leading rebounder, and 26 offensive rebounds to the Rams. The win dropped La Salle behind Dayton, which hosted UMass on Saturday night, in the Atlantic Ten standings.

WHEN YOU have a high-octane, fast-paced team with a pro-style spread offense and a strong-armed quarterback like La Salle College High features, it can translate to many points on the scoreboard. That was the case Saturday night, when Kyle Shurmur completed 14 of 19 passes for 229 yards and two scores in a 31-7 rout of Father Judge in the Catholic League AAAA contest at Northeast High. "We certainly wanted to finish this regular season strong and carry it into the [Catholic League]

Nearly two decades of frustration bounced away on Saturday afternoon. But that was not Jarett Nast's intent when he booted the ball from near midfield in the second overtime of Roman Catholic's 2-1 win over La Salle in a Catholic League boys' soccer semifinal at Archbishop Ryan. The senior defender looped the ball into the box, hoping it would find a teammate. It took a high hop. A lucky bounce, Nast said. The La Salle goalie had come out too soon. He could only watch as the ball sprang over his head and into the net. The 45-yard goal triggered a frantic celebration.

With its Division I quarterback, record-setting wide receiver, and stalwart tailback, the offense of the La Salle football team is a headline-generating machine. Maybe it's time to hear it for the defense, too. The Explorers kept Father Judge's potent offense under wraps in a 31-7 Catholic League AAAA victory at Northeast. La Salle's defense held Father Judge to 226 yards of total offense and no points after a first-quarter touchdown run by Zack Carroll. Isaiah Henrich, Sean Collins, Anthony Piscopo, and Garrett Zobel had sacks.

Bill Wasylenko never set out to become the archivist for the La Salle football team. He never expected to have much to do with La Salle at all after graduating in 1969. When he went to a football game at Plymouth Whitemarsh with his two young sons on Labor Day weekend of 2001, it was the first time he had seen the Explorers play in more than 30 years. He was almost fearful he'd run into some of his old classmates. Then the team came to the sidelines, the band played the alma mater, and "all of a sudden, warm feelings came back," Wasylenko said.

NEW YORK - It was only a year ago that La Salle, coming off a berth in the 2013 NCAA Sweet 16, was arguably the most popular team at the Atlantic 10 Conference basketball media day. "Yeah, I used to be famous," coach John Giannini said at Tuesday's media day at the Barclays Center. This year, Giannini might prefer to forget about last season's 15-16 finish despite the fact that the Explorers returned most of their regulars from that NCAA team. But he likes that his current seniors started working toward the 2014-15 season just a few days after their season ended in the A-10 tournament.

He and his students traveled from their Olney campus to the Last Frontier during six summers starting in the 1960s.

WITH THE Plymouth Whitemarsh stadium filled, D'Andre Swift heard nothing but silence as he soared in the air for the football. "I was just blanking out," the sophomore running back and defensive back said. "I was just worried about the ball. " Swift leaped in front of the St. Joseph's Prep sideline with defenders all around and the ball perilously close to being too high. The catch helped his trailing Hawks convert a key third down from their 16 late in the fourth. The Hawks, ranked No. 2 by the Daily News, rode that momentum to a 35-31 Catholic League win over top-ranked La Salle last night.
